Australia: A Failing Continent

Killmore East-Murrindindi Complex Fire, Victoria


Among the areas devastated by bushfires in Victoria, Australia, in early February 2009 were Kinglake National Park and the surrounding rural and agricultural areas. The park is located on the slopes of the Great Dividing Range Mountains that arc northward through Victoria and along Australia’s East Coast. The park is only 65 kilometers (about 40 miles) north of Melbourne, and it is important to the city not just as a recreation area, but also because it protects some of the rivers and streams that supply the nearly four million city residents with water.

The Moderators can clearly see what is happening to Australia. Why have the Australian government and scientific community buried their heads in the sand?
